PLEASE SUPPORT MACKENZIE AND ALL OF THE HEART WARRIORS!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the 2021 Congenital Heart Walk. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to me.
We found out Mackenzie with a congential heart defect, Tetralogy of Fallot, when I was 20 weeks pregnant. She was born a "pink-tet" which meant her heart was functioning well at birth and she only stayed in the NICU for 2 days. One week after Mackenzie turned 4 months old, she had open heart surgery at St. Joseph Children's Hospital with Dr. Karl Reyes. She had a 21 day inpatient stay filled with challenges but triumphs. Dr. Reyes and the team performed a true miracle and Mackenzie is thriving. She is the strongest, bravest, and most resilient person we've ever known. Our family is greatly touched by CHD and we want to raise funds to help increase research to help kids and families like ours. Having a heart warrior was not something we expected but we will always celebrate the amazing miracle Mackenzie is! CHDs are present in about 1% of all babies born. Mackenzie's condition, Tetralogy of Fallot, is a complex CHD with a total of 4 defects. Tetralogy of Fallot is found in approximately 1 out of every 10 to babies born with CHD.
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!
